Back In The Saddle? '08 STS 3.6DI

Recommended Posts


I've been astray, having sold my '96 SLS many years ago.  But I've got a line on an '08 STS, it looks super-clean, but the mileage is high at 160K.  It has the 302HP 3.6DI engine.  Having lived la vida Northstar with all its highs and lows, I thought maybe the 3.6 might be a reasonable choice.  But now I'm reading that the latter-day N* is less prone to head gasket issues, and the 3.6 isn't as reliable.  What is a geezer to do?  The power difference is minimal, although the torque on the N* is more fun.  I've wanted the next-gen STS for a while, and I'm going to get one, but which one should I choose?

I have not warmed up to the newer Sevilles. I still have my 1997.

Also love my v8. Not a big fan of the 3.6l.

Glad to see you are entertaining another Caddy.

Best of luck with it


Nice, clean, luxury= fine automobile
